Video Highlights: Lyon 2 v Real Madrid 2

Lyon went 2-0 up through goals from Clement Grenier and Lisandro Lopez, but Alvaro Morata and Casemiro found the net to earn the draw for Real Madrid.

Grenier gave Lyon the lead with a stunning strike after he one-time hooked a cross past Diego Lopez in the 19th minute.

The home side then went 2-0 ahead when Lopez pounced on a loose ball in the area and fired home past the Real Madrid goalkeeper from close range in the 61st minute.

After Luka Modric hit the post for Real Madrid it seems as those the Spanish giants were heading towards a defeat in their second pre-season outing.

However, Morata scored the penalty spot in the 77th minute to send the last 13-minutes into an interesting contest.

Carlo Ancelotti side went searching for the equalizing goal and they were rewarded in the 83rd minute when Casemiro broke free from his marker and then headed home from a corner kick.
